No matter what the movie is, if it has big name stars, iconic characters, or explosive action, it’s safe to say anyone would love a sneak peek at it, especially when the film doesn’t fully release until the summer of the next year.
The Dark Knight Rises is the perfect example of a film that has people anticipating the IMAX release of Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol, and not even for the film itself, but a promise to witness the first 6 minutes of the epic finale of Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise. But what if that first look is of a sequel of a film that was just a complete mess, simultaneously tarnishing its source material and enraging fans completely?
That film is none other than G.I Joe: Retaliation, and, even with just a short 18 second preview, it seems the sequel is making quite the effort to make us forget about the original that shall not be named, discarding the ridiculously fake robotic “super suits” and instead focusing more on the powerhouse introduction of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Bruce Willis. The film also stars Channing Tatum, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Adrianne Palicki, and Arnold Vosloo, among others.
Check out the preview below:
Now as I mentioned before, this is only a quick preview of the full length trailer, which will premier later today, so I’ll keep all the details and opinions at a minimum until then. So think of this of a way to hold you over and definitely make sure to check back for the release of the first trailer!
G.I Joe: Retaliation opens June 29, 2012.
